Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak was released on January 10, 2020 and received humongous response from the audiences. However, right now the film is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. For the unversed, contempt proceedings have been made against Chhapaak’s filmmakers for violating the court’s direction to give credit to Laxmi Agarwal’s lawyer in the credit scenes of the film. However, as per the statement given by the makers at Delhi High Court, Laxmi’s lawyer was given credit in the film.

However, they also revealed that she was given credit in the film released only in the Indian theatres and not in the international releases.

The lawyers who appeared on behalf of the makers also said that they will accept the instructions for a possible solution of the issue. The court also said that if there is any violation of the orders then the makers will have to make amends.

Disappointed with the makers for deliberately not giving credits to Aparna bhat who helped in making this movie by providing facts. Shame on you for your publicity stunt. Very disappointed.
